What’s better than being a couple’s wedding photographers? Getting to be the couple’s wedding day photographers and then also capturing their maternity portraits! It was beyond fun to capture Rachael and Andy’s wedding at Settlement Hill Farms in Hudson, Wisconsin, and getting to catch up with them again at Afton State Park last week was icing on the cake. I loved walking amongst the empty trees and capturing not only their love for each other, but also their love for their soon-to-be-here baby boy! Rachael is 33 weeks pregnant and beyond glowing!
If it has not been clear, I love my job. Seriously, how cool is it to hang out with amazing people and capture the specialness of their relationship? So beyond #blessed. Matt & Laura here are the best! We first connected back when they were engaged and had the honor of photographing their wedding day at the Grands at Mulligan (you can see that fun here). We then went on to be able to capture their maternity photos last year, and now we’re capturing their family of three with little Nolan here!
Daniel and Anna met on Bumble three years ago. The attraction was mutual, and they decided to meet up with each other for their first date. They met each other at the show “Jesus Christ Superstar” — which they now admit was a rather unique first date in that they did not get to chat face-to-face like so many couples choose, but it was the perfect choice for them. They went out to chat afterwards after sitting shoulder-to-shoulder, enjoying the show and have been inseparable since. They love to spend their time traveling and being outdoors hiking, camping, and riding bikes, so it was only natural that we picked Afton State Park as the spot for their engagement portraits — and the fall colors did not disappoint!
This group of people right here are so fun to hang out with and take their family photos! And four generations?! Yes, please! It’s always a great time to connect with the McDonald/Teal family. I first met them all at our church and have had the pleasure of photographing them when the Teal family unit was only 3 and now they’re 5! It’s amazing how quickly life changes and time passes by, but the love of a family overcomes, grows, and yet stays the same love.
The cuteness is real. Right?! Like how cute is this little lady with her matching mommy-and-me boots? How cute is it when her daddy draws her up into her arms and she snuggles tight, then quickly runs away to show them all the fun new things around her during their family photo session?! How cute are they when they played Baby Shark and had some serious family dance moves? How cute!
